At Alta Vista Laser Dental Centre in Ottawa, our dentist provides cosmetic dental services designed to improve the overall appearance of your teeth and gums.
What is Cosmetic Dental Care?
With cosmetic dental treatments, our primary goal is to make aesthetic changes to the teeth and gums.
Are your teeth discoloured? Perhaps they are misaligned, broken, worn or have gaps between them. Cosmetic dental procedures can help improve their symmetry and colour.
For many patients, these treatments can make a significant impact when it comes to having the confidence to smile again.
If you're looking for a safe and effective way to whiten your teeth, you may want to head to your dentist's office for a professional teeth whitening session. Teeth whitening uses peroxide-based bleaching agents, which are designed to lighten the colour of your teeth.
Laser-activated bleaching allows us to whiten your teeth faster, and typically with less sensitivity, than with conventional in-office procedures. With in-office and take-home treatment options available, you can enjoy a lighter, brighter smile for years to come.
These thin pieces of porcelain are placed on the front of your teeth to change their shape or colour. Veneers are used on teeth that are chipped, oddly shaped, discoloured, unevenly spaced, or crooked. They are custom-made to fit your tooth and your mouth, and are considered a less invasive alternative to dental crowns since they don't require as much reshaping of your teeth.
Veneers can also be used on teeth with uneven surfaces. Porcelain is tolerated well by gum tissue and unlike tooth enamel, is naturally stain-resistant.
The aptly named dental bonding procedure has your dentist literally 'bonding' tooth-coloured composite resin to decayed, discoloured, damaged or gapped teeth to leave you with a more even, natural-looking smile. Your dentist will choose the composite resin that most closely matches your teeth.
Dental bonding is a relatively easy and inexpensive cosmetic dental procedures. It can be used to correct a tooth's symmetry to other teeth, or enhance its colour or shape. The procedure can protect part of a tooth root that may have been exposed due to receding gums.
Some patients will need a comprehensive treatment plan that encompasses a number of dental procedures offered at Alta Vista Laser Dental Centre. This includes gummy smile correction using a laser - an important part of aesthetic rehabilitation. It is a safe, relatively quick procedure that requires a much shorter healing period versus conventional surgery.
This customized plan allows us to complete all the dental procedures you need in fewer appointments and with more efficient results.
